Walking Away From Back Pain
Does going for a walk sound like a big pain in the back? For those who struggle with chronic back pain, even the basic task of going for a walk can be overwhelming and painful. Back pain can strike at any time. Whether in the upper back, surrounding the neck and shoulders, or in the lower back with or without sciatica, back pain is something that no one likes to deal with for too long. Relying on pain medications to help you overcome back pain will leave you disappointed. While pain medications are frequently helpful at alleviating the discomfort of your back pain for a short period of time, they are not capable of resolving the underlying issue that is causing your pain to develop in the first place. The only thing that can actually fix your back pain is addressing the issue that is causing your pain head on. Physical therapy is a great resource for addressing your back pain and can be a helpful tool in getting you back on your feet. Whether back pain occurs following a sudden injury or has developed over time and is chronic, physical therapy could be the
answer to helping you enjoy life free of back pain. And the secret to success is learning to approach recovery one step at a time.

When your back pain begins to interfere with your ability to move around freely, then you know it is time to do something about it. Walking may be more than a goal when it comes to back pain, it could be part of the solution. Working with a physical therapist to develop improved strategies and techniques with your walking could help you to get back on your feet sooner than you thought possible.
